  1. Unfortunately I never got to meet Brian but we corresponded many times.
  2. We have sadly lost the font of all knowledge about waterways in Ireland Brian Goggin, he helped me a lot when I was mapping the waterways of Ireland and we corresponded since. A link to the announcement in his blog BJG Death RIP Brian

  5. BW where part of the original partnership but pulled out.
  6. You get that using the old fashioned drawing printing machines. Had to use that in my first job washing the grease off connector covers in a bucket of it. I thought Evostick was the sniffers best friend
  7. Wey And Arun Junction canal. Arun Navigation. Portsmouth and Arundel canal River Rotherham Navigation (Sussex) to Midhurst. River Bure Navigation. Utterly impossible Monkland canal
  8. There'a an area of Windsor called Spital, not unsurprisingly near the hospital.
  9. Are they importing poles from Canada then?
  10. Sorry guys I'm a bit late to this thread, but back in the early 80's I came across a boater on the Llangollen Canal in full captains uniform including the peaked cap, wooden pole painted multi colours fending his clean boat off the dirty canal banks, he didn't like me passing. My friends from the Wey & Arun canal trust where a couple of miles behind me and they where having a go at hauling the boat with ropes, the captain ended up in the cut.
  11. The camp site i stayed on a couple of weeks ago had signs all round the toilet/shower blocks saying no cycling, still a knob head in lycra cycled there and nearly took out a chap exiting the door, knob head didn't stop or apologise.
